Greetings from Atlanta

Greetings,My name is Phord(Bob)and I'm in Suwanee Ga( N of Atlanta). I've been a do-it-yourselfer all my life. My dad gave me some tools when I was 5. My grandfather taught me how to cut stuff up and put it back together about the same time. I was paneling the basement at 14 and wiring stuff up that same year. The electrician that the city made us hire couldn't believe I'd done it right.
Fast forward 54 years and I'm still building something all the time. My main interest now (like this is a change)is old cars. So now I need space to store all my car stuff. That means I'm still building, wiring etc. Everything in my world needs "more power".
I'm a retired postal worker(rural carrier) so I guess the only thing I'm good at is carrying high powered weapons and grenades and stuff. Actually I'm pretty good at misdelivering mail and failing to close mail boxes too.
Well thats my introduction. I wonder if anybody will actually read it? I'm off to the basement to stick something in my electrical panel to make sparks

Hi Phord,
Welcome to the site! Hope we can help sometime with your projects. Maybe you can help others with theirs.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. If you wouldn't put your name on it, it ain't done right!

I agree with Phord - power makes EVERYTHING better! Viva la power tools! I like that so much, I think I shall make it my motto.
